    there's no way to know for sure unless you can do things like get a spore print, or cut it open, and look at the bore surface May 26, 2019 at 21:05

It certainly looks like a Morel type; However , in the US there are also false Morels which are not edible . It seems like the right time of year; Do local oaks have small fuzzy new leaves ? If you like mushrooms , it would be worth identifying properly because the are likely to come up the same place ,the same time next year.
